What do you think? Upskilling and Reskilling

Victoria MacLennan. 03 May 2022, 8:14 pm

The digital technology industry is suffering greatly from a mismatch of skill supply and demand at different stages of the skills pipeline. This makes it difficult for firms to find the experienced people they need, for graduates to get their first job, tech workers to get career progression, and for the sector to growand in turn support the New Zealand economy.
Upskilling and reskilling is one of the ways we can address the skills mismatch in the digital technology sector by helping to fill the demand, especially for the senior roles where we have the greatest shortage.The only way we are going to fix this long-term is if we invest in the development of domestic talent.

We are getting this work started by doing a deep dive to understand: 

  • existing opportunities for upskilling and reskilling in the digital technology sector
  • what is getting in the way of people being able to upskill and reskill 
  • what can be done to give more people the chance to upskill and reskill in digital technology.
